Human CCL8/MCP-2 Antibody Summary

Species Reactivity
Detects human CCL8/MCP-2 in ELISAs and Western blots. In ELISAs, this antibody shows less than 0.1% cross-reactivity with recombinant human (rh) CCL15 and rmCCL3.
Monoclonal Mouse IgG1 Clone # 35509
Protein A or G purified from ascites
E. coli-derived recombinant human CCL8/MCP-2
Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in PBS with Trehalose. *Small pack size (SP) is supplied either lyophilized or as a 0.2 µm filtered solution in PBS.
Endotoxin Level
<0.10 EU per 1 μg of the antibody by the LAL method.


Recommended Concentration

Human CCL8/MCP-2 Sandwich Immunoassay

Recommended Concentration
ELISA Capture (Matched Antibody Pair)
2-8 µg/mL 

Use in combination with:

Detection Reagent: Human CCL8/MCP‑2 Biotinylated Antibody (Catalog # BAF281)

Standard: Recombinant Human CCL8/MCP-2 Protein (Catalog # 281-CP)

Measured by its ability to neutralize CCL8/MCP‑2-induced chemotaxis in the BaF3 mouse pro‑B cell line transfected with human CCR5. The Neutralization Dose (ND50) is typically 1-4 µg/mL in the presence of 0.25 µg/mL Recombinant Human CCL8/MCP‑2.

Please Note: Optimal dilutions should be determined by each laboratory for each application. General Protocols are available in the Technical Information section on our website.

Chemotaxis Induced by CCL8/MCP‑2 and Neutralization by Human CCL8/MCP‑2 Antibody. Recombinant Human CCL8/MCP-2 (Catalog # 281-CP) chemoattracts the BaF3 mouse pro-B cell line transfected with human CCR5 in a dose-dependent manner (orange line). The amount of cells that migrated through to the lower chemotaxis chamber was measured by Resazurin (Catalog # AR002). Chemotaxis elicited by Recombinant Human CCL8/MCP-2 (0.25 µg/mL) is neutralized (green line) by increasing concentrations of Mouse Anti-Human CCL8/MCP-2 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB281). The ND50 is typically 1-4 µg/mL.

Background: CCL8/MCP-2

CCL8, also known as Monocyte Chemoattractant Protein 2 (MCP-2), is an inflammatory CC chemokine that attracts monocytes, eosinophils and basophils. It is produced by many cell types and signals through interactions with CCR1, CCR2, CCR3 and CCR5.
